I trust that every person who steps into the therapy room has an innate understanding of what they need. In my work, I invite my clients to lean into that deeper knowing to co-create the therapeutic space. By implementing body-oriented and trauma-informed practices I will support you in both honoring the wisdom of your nervous system and developing tools to maintain its regulation.
My background includes working with parents, children, and house-less people in community mental health and as a post-partum doula. Through this work and in the spaces I occupy, I have come to recognize the necessity of holding ancestral trauma, systemic oppression, and current affairs closely in mind while moving through the many layers of healing encountered in the therapeutic process. I encourage my clients to draw from nature, physical movement, and artistic expression to support this healing and hold reverence for the intuitive resourcing strategies they have already cultivated in themselves. Some of the theoretical orientations I draw from are Sensorimotor, relational, and Somatic experiencing.
